[En français ICI]

The second anthology of queer African creative writing catches and shares the energy and diversity of queer voices in poetry, fiction, memoir, photo-essay, etc.

As the only queer pan-African arts and culture digital magazine of the continent, Q-Zine committed to being authentic, creative, and accessible.

I’m deeply glad to be a contributor of The Creative Writing Issue #2 of Q-zine with my essay ‘Processing the tree’.
